Link Blitz

Slept on my neck weird. Hurts to tilt my head back (which is a lot better than when it hurts tilting to the side. I've learned I look left and right far more frequently than up).

The grad school applications are almost in (for le husband, for those of you who don't know. A bachelor's was PLENTY of school for me), which means I'll know where we'll be moving in August that much sooner. Huzzah.

LTUE is almost here as well. I LOVE the panels of this conference. My sister may attend a day or two with me. I really want her to talk to Stacy Whitman of Tu Books, because her WIP* is perfect for her, methinks. Or at least very close. ;)

*A WIP which, mind you, is almost done with revisions. :D


  1. That At-At greyhound at the end of the VW commercial made me double over laughing. So. Much. Fun.

  2. That commercial is amazing! Part of me wonders how they managed to do it, but the other part just wants to enjoy the magic. ;)

  3. Hilarious! Fantastic commercial - and as always, great link blitz.

    (I'm so flattered you included my post! TY)

  4. LOVED the Volkswagon commercial. My son came running and he totally knew what it was. Too funny.

    Otherwise, thanks for all the links! Lots of good stuff to tempt me (like the comedian one). :)

  5. I had to check out that stormtrooper cake. Unbelievable!
